The Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) has served as a crucial engine of growth for Africa over the past decade, generating more than three hundred thousand jobs on the continent and an estimated four hundred billion in exports from the region.

This forum will look beyond AGOA to project a new trade relationship with Africa that builds on AGOA’s successes and challenges. Participants will discuss the future of AGOA and African economic policy imperatives for the U.S. Government.
